Also the last time , I believe I only replaced 8 liters of trans fluid. I will buy 16 liters now and flush as much as I can using Martin's method .. disconnecting the upper ATF line on the side of the radiator.

Wow..........how did you get 8 liters out last time? When I dropped my pan and drained the torque converter, I only got 7.25 liters out. I think total capacity is 8.5 liters, so 8 is really good!

Well am probably wrong on my recollection .

Reading again Martin's post #11 of this thread
https://www.benzworld.org/forums/w210...ml#post5406702

When you do the Fluid Exchange ..he mentions about getting new ATF Fluid using his method at around 3 gallons which is around 12 liters already. Then doing 2 to 4 more quarts to take out all the old fluid.

Am I reading his Fluid Exchange Method wrong ?

That's probably the best way to get the most old fluid out (especially if there is no TQ plug). I think it also known as The Yumling Method:

I thought about doing it, but 7.25 liters is good enough for me since I plan on doing a pan fluid exchange via extractor at every oil change (~10K).

just an update ...

After replacing gasket, filter , 13 pin connector and 2.5 gallons of fluid exchange using Martin's method , took it for a 20 minutes test drive and so far so good .

Last time I replaced the conductor plate and partial fluid exchange was more than 3 years ago. I guess I will just have to replace filter, gasket and fluid every 12k or 2 years whichever comes first which was actually suggested by MAVA in an early post .

thanks to every one .

Thanks ! Your post and Martin liking it gave me confidence not to touch the conductor plate and solenoids. There were no error codes related to them so I was debating on that for two days since the lower part of the trans was already open...." but if it is not broke, don't touch it"

I actually just came from an hour (50 miles) free hour driving. The transmission shifted beautifully from 0 - 80mph .. up and down .

I got an error light though while driving (ESP - BAS) which I believe was cause by my brake lights (left, right , center) being always on the moment you turn the switch on. I would have to check on that.

When I reached home , a few minutes ago , I connected carsoft 7.4 and got the ME / EGS dianostics. No errors for ME but got an error for EGS which was 2404

P2404 The stop lamp switch signal sent from the traction system via the CAN bus is implausible.

which I believe is consistent with the brake lights being on and after doing the ABS / ASR / diagnostics got the

C1200 error code which refer to the Brake Light switch. So that has nothing to do with the transmission.

I can confirm that the transmission is working fine now I believe.


Thanks once again to all !

Just an update ... after 550 miles every thing is good so far.

Took me 10 minutes to replace the Brake Light switch which was giving me the error codes stated on the previous post and all good so far. Now my brakes lights are not anymore on the moment you turn the key to the on position.

Just waiting for it to go through the Drive Cycle so I can get it emissioned. I still have the Catalyst and O2 Sensor Monitors not ready after 550 miles . You can only have one emission monitor not ready for a +2002 vehicle to pass Emission in Georgia.

550 miles is a lot of driving for emissions drive cycle. I have reset the ECU few days ago, and I still have the catalyst and the secondary air injection left with 50 miles of driving.

You can use the attached as a guide to help you out.

That is what I am wondering at . I know in less than 100 miles , all my other vehicles GMC, Chevy, Lexus , Supra MKIV are done with their drive cycle .

Is it because I drive this vehicle 5 miles the farthest every day ? Though I have driven it thrice ... 25 miles away one way. I was hoping I would have been done with its drive cycle then . Still I had two monitors not ready so I just said , I will wait for it . 550 miles after .. still not ready

The thing is there are NO error codes . All other monitors are ready except those two.

I will check that document that you attached mrboca ...

thanks
